I'm back today to review one of my favorite products EVER from The Pencil Grip, Inc! The Pencil Grip, Inc. produces several great pencil grips, including their 3-Step Grip Development Training Kit., as well as other items that are great for therapists (and moms!), like Kwik Stix! Kwik Stix is actual tempera paint in tubes similar to glue sticks. No water is required, the paint goes on smoothly, and it dries in less than 90 seconds! As a result, there's virtually NO MESS!
Quick Disclaimer: A set of Kwik Stix was provided in exchange for my honest review. The opinions below are all mine. An Amazon Affiliate link is also included in this post.
I was given a sample stick of Kwik Stix at a conference over the summer. When I got home, I tried it out, and could not believe how easily and smoothly it painted on the paper and how quickly it dried! In less than 30 seconds, I was able to brush my hand over the paint with absolutely no paint rubbing off on my hands. For a therapist who sees kids in 30-minute increments, quick-drying paint is a major positive. Now my kids can finish their crafts and take them with them when they go. No more craft-delivering all over the school for me!
After trying out the sample, I knew I needed an entire set! This is a 12 pack set, but they also come in Neon colors, Metallic colors, a 24 pack, and a 96 piece class set. You can also order thinner paint stix as well!
As you can see below, my students LOVED them. They worked great on paper, cardboard, paper plates, cardstock, and construction paper! Days later, the colors had not faded at all!

What do you think? Have you ever seen or used Kwik Stix? These are most definitely topping my little one's Christmas list this year! I need sets for school AND home!
